1/15/11 31 Day Challenge.. Featured Artist...Paula (JournalArtista)

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to day 15 of my 31 day Pay it forward challenge. Today's featured artist is...Paula Phillips (JournalArtista)

Wow, where do I begin? I owe a lot of Thanks and gratitude to Paula,as through her I have met many people and things. She showed me a new style of art, and all of the wonderful people in the art community, over on Ustream, and Youtube. I am very proud to call her my good friend.

And Mad Skills? Paula has them in droves! Have you seen the Winter edition of Art Journaling magazine? Well, Paula is a featured artist in the winter 2011 edition, and wrote a great article to go along with her 8 page spread of her journal pages.

Are you on the If not you should be. Paula has tons of content over there, including the cover of the art journaling zine, put out by a select group of artist's from the ning.

Did you join 21 secrets? 21 Secrets was a web based class presenting 21 different artists, going over 21 different styles, techniques and classes. Paula did a segment on windows and doors.

Have you checked out Ustream yet? Paula gives you a great excuse to. Every Wednesday at Saturday nights at 9:00pm EST, you will find Paula sharing from her art desk her latest pages.

Tonight is a special night. Paula is having a party of sorts as she is in her art room for the first time, and also will be giving away a fabulous book.

Are you on YouTube? Paula is, and here she is sharing instructional videos, organizational videos and a lot of fun.
Paula is celebrating her 100th video upload today. You will find lots of content for many mediums here.

Do you follow blogs? You should follow Paula's to see what she will do next!

So, Paula is everywhere, including Twitter and Facebook, as JournalArtista.

She has made me appreciate so many forms of art, and people. She started out as a scrapbooker, stamper and has now unified the scrapbooking community with Art Journaling. Now every scrapper wants their own set of Golden acrylic paints and a journal to call their own. She gave us all confidence to try the new, and to grow our community. She is a wonderful, funny loving spirit, and my very good friend. I am too grateful for words. Big Hugs Paula.

Below is a video of a little something I created for Paula to use in her new art space.

Be sure to check Paula out everywhere! She is super talented, and I love her bunches!
